A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Give Me All Your Luvin'" is a pretty tame pop single -- especially considering it's by Madonna, Nicki Minaj, and M.I.A. The song does contain a few lyrics about drinking wine and sex ("sleeping on me" and "tricks"), along with a couple of bleeped-out profanities ("s--t"). Otherwise, the track tells a tame tale about having an honest romantic relationship, making it an OK pick for older kids.

What's the story?
One of the biggest pop stars of all time is back with a new single: "Give Me All Your Luvin,'" the debut track from Madonna's 12th studio album, MDNA. After years of releasing the sexiest songs in the business, Madonna tones it down considerably in this tune -- spending most of the track convincing a love interest to engage in a truthful relationship with her. The music queen gets an assist here from two contemporary rap princesses, Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.
Is it any good?
When describing her new album, Madonna has said that she wanted to make something to dance to -- and this track fits the bill. While it doesn't break any new ground, the upbeat cheerleader hook and creative guest spots from Minaj and M.I.A. make the song well suited for club rotation.
